Two of Our Favorite ’90s Beauty Products Just Got a Major Makeover
As ‘90s babies, we’re fond of quite a few throwback beauty trends — face-framing flyaways, royal blue eyeliner, and wine-stained lipstick, to name a few. But it’s not just the trends themselves that we’re fans of, but the products that were popular in that decade too. Throwback favorites Clinique Dramatically Different moisturizer and Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder were staples in our beauty bags back then, and they both received a major modern update.
Laura Mercier Glow Setting Powder
What It Promises: An ultra-fine finishing powder (just like the original) infused with pearl pigments to add a touch of coverage, lend a luminous finish, and keep your makeup in place for up to 12 hours.
How It’s Different: Glow comes in two universally flattering options — Translucent and Translucent Medium Deep. But it’s not the shades that are making people swoon but rather the lit-from-within effect that the powder creates. The light-reflecting formula minimizes shine, ups the wear of foundation and concealer, and accentuates blush, bronzer, and highlighter thanks to its shimmering finish. Use Glow with the original to achieve the easiest highlight and contour ever: First minimize shine with the Translucent Loose Setting Powder, and then add radiance across the high points of your face with Glow.

Clinique Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly
What It Promises: A lightweight solution to deep, 24-hour hydration that works overtime to protect skin against pollution.
How It’s Different: Unlike its sunshine-yellow, oil-balancing big sis, this clear, oil-free jelly promises up to 24 hours of thirst-quenching hydration. The update addresses modern-day stressors like pollution with barrier-supporting ingredients including sunflower seed cake, barley extract, and cucumber fruit extract. The result? Skin that’s 87 percent less vulnerable in the face of free radicals and other environmental skin naysayers, according to Clinique. This means that, while you’ll notice dewy, supple skin, you’ll also see an improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, and overall texture.
